yeah, my only ride was a highway over pass behind my old neighborhood, only about a 1/4ml long. i got up to a whopping 22mph. no wobbles though (even though it wasn't much of a test). really wish i could try a nice long downhill on it at least once.

So we do this 3 or 4 times a year. From the top of Mt Wellington in Hobart, Tasmania. 15 miles of downhill, 4200ft elevation loss, anywhere from 5 to 8 pubs, ending up in the city center.
Was a slow run this time, my maximum speed was only 35mph, I've done 40 before.
reminds me of the portland zoobomb. we used to make the trek from seattle just to bomb that hill on little kids bikes with everyone, it was so much fun.

Yeah, that was the inspiration. Actually did a Zoobomb once, thought it was a little short. Our hill is a mountain though, and no train so it's a one shot deal . Often snow at the top, and sometimes we have to start lower, especially at the equinoxes and the winter solstice. But that's ok, with all the stops along the way it often takes 5 or 6 hours to cover the 25km. It's more like a series of social occasions with some extreme mini bike action in between, thankfully as the social increases the steepness decreases, then we get to play in the traffic.

i've looked at that one gravity bike vid on you tube a million times. the bike with the bomb on it (can't remember the guy's name now) was one of my inspirations. love to be able to take my bike and try that at least once.

edit: s.i.n. cycles. yes my brain barely works

Looks like the owner got a flat on the rear and doesn't have a cuttin' torch to get the rear wheel out.
